"'Girl power' means nothing if you can't spell it."
1 stars

There's just no point to any of this.

Let's be serious. The songs are crap. The appeal, to thousands of pre-14 year old females and the same number of post-30 year old men, is a combination of breast and success.

This film goes no way to changing that impression. There's nothing to it. One of the earlier working titles was "It's Been A Hard Fifteen Minutes", which didn't even try to disguise the fact that this is a blatant Hard Day's Night rip off.

The girls run around singing occasionally, acting badly, trying to be funny and clinging like leeches to any famous face who agreed to do a cameo, hoping they'll give the movie substance.

They don't. It's awful. Even from a fan's point of view, I can't see how it would be seen as anything more. They should have just filmed a concert. At least that would have been original.

"People Of The World!" "BREAK! OUT! THE! GUNS!"
